Antara completed her second Master’s degree in remote sensing and geo-information science from ITC, Netherlands in 2015. Previously, she did a master’s in environmental science from Doon University in Dehradun and a bachelor’s in chemistry from Sri Venkateshwara College, Delhi University. She was awarded the MYCOE-SERVIR Himalaya Fellowship by ICIMOD/NASA/ESRI/USAID/AAG for the year 2012-13 under which she researched the “Climate Change Adaptation Strategies in the Garhwal Himalayas”. She has also created an open source tool using Python for snow cover assessment. Her demonstrated passion for research and a keen interest in numerical modelling and data assimilation techniques inspired her to take on this challenging project. She wants to build a career in academics and is very excited about this opportunity. Her extra-curricular interests include light and western vocals, classical dance and travelling.
